* EldritchAbomination: Nerissa (as "The Mage") says, [[BlatantLies lying though her teeth as she does so]], that Jade is a shapeshifter with a default form similar to this, so the rebels will mistrust and try to imprison her, allowing Nerissa to easily recruit her.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech:
** Phobos delivers one to Caleb, telling him that it was the Guardians and Elyon who defeated him, not the Rebellion, which he considers a bunch of armed peasants. Vathek then points out that Phobos was dethroned by a group of teenage girls, causing everybody there to laugh at him. Phobos still gets the last laugh by pointing out how the mighty Rebellion seems to fear Jade, who is even younger than the Guardians and Elyon.
** Jade delivers a scathing one [[WhatTheHellHero to Will]] after she learns of the FrameUp the Guardians pulled on Raythor and his resulting banishment to the Abyss of Shadows, saying that such an act makes the Guardians unworthy of being called heroes. The following day, Will is actually conceding Jade's point before her friends push her concerns aside.

* YouCantFightFate: In chapter 8, Himerish and Tibor briefly [[DiscussedTrope discuss if this trope is valid]]. Himerish is willing to give Jade the benefit of the doubt before judging her, remembering how he could only foresee how the tragedy of [[FallenHeroine Nerissa]] and Cassidy ended, not the events leading to it. He admits that perhaps [[SelfFulfillingProphecy his attempts to prevent the tragedy led Nerissa onto her path]] and is open to the possibility that maybe the outcome could have been avoided by a different approach. Tibor thinks that the tragedy [[BecauseDestinySaysSo could have happened regardless of anyone's interference]].

* {{Foil}}: Jade and Elyon to each other in more than one way.
** Their elements are [[CastingAShadow shadow]] and [[LightEmUp light]], respectively. The Light of Meridian's power rivals the power of the Heart of Kandrakar. According to ancient legends, this can also be the case with shadow magic.
** They also contrast each other in the way they handle their powers. At the moment, Jade has [[WeakButSkilled far less raw magical power, but uses creatively those she currently has]]. Elyon has [[UnskilledButStrong a lot of raw magical power, but only little control over them]]. However, Elyon is on the way of [[SubvertedTrope subverting]] her status with the lessons she's having from the Oracle. If N'ghala's vision is of any indication, Jade's status will also be subverted by some sort of a power source.
** Elyon is Meridian's ruler [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking by birthright]]. According to Yua, Jade will become a queen [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority through thrive and trial]].
** Elyon was prophecied to end her brother's tyrannical rule and [[RightfulKingReturns claim her rightful throne]]. Jade is apparently prophecied to [[TheAntichrist end Kandrakar's influence]] and [[DarkMessiah spread darkness across the Known Worlds]].
** Elyon is worshipped by most of Meridian's population and Jade is [[HeroWithBadPublicity feared/hated by most of them]].
** Elyon is a NaiveEverygirl and Jade is a cunning GuileHeroine.
** They could also be a TomboyAndGirlyGirl pair. Unlike girls of her age, Jade has a thirst for adventures and eagerness to prove herself. She also has never been much into admiring boys, finding it to be too stupid and girly. Elyon laments the loss of princess excitement of being a queen (a masked ball, Prince Charming, a castle on a cloud...).

** When Jade notices how many of the rebels are holding onto their old bitterness towards the Guard, she thinks about the irony of how that makes them not that different from the other Knights. She also expresses the belief that if the Meridianites could, they would wait for centuries to have their revenge, like [[SinsOfOurFathers Shendu]] did for 900 years.
